This week, I like thousands of others finished my Lululemon x Strava challenge. Congrats to everyone who completed it, it is great to see so many people getting out there and crushing winter miles. This week I decided to commit to doing strength training twice a week in addition to core, because I want to feel strong on the hills of Boston.
Here is what I did last week:
Monday: OFF. I did a strength training workout and some core.
Tuesday: 45′ easy,
Wednesday: I did a core workout before work (very unusual for me), and then our group workout was a series of 7 hills we typically do in the winter called the 7 sisters.
Thursday: 60′ easy, I ran home from work. I also did strength training.
Friday: 40′ easy, I ran to work. Really made the most of those run commutes this week.
Saturday: Group WO, 15′ easy, 3 sets of 11′ as 5’@4:30, 1’@4:20, 5’@4:30, 20′ easy. This was a bigger one, but it went well. I also did core.
Sunday: 120′ easy, headed out with 2 team-mates along Lochside, ended up passing through a race course (we stepped aside to let them go) and then continued on. We haven’t had a long run on Lochside in a while and made it all the way to the pigs, which is a landmark on long runs.
Total Weekly Mileage: 72.2 km
This week the mileage will increase and the second race of the year is next Sunday, not taper since it is not a goal race.
